“Military Issue. BTW- I think I just figured out why this whole thing is happening in Syria.
Look up "Golan Heights Oil"....it all makes sense now....which is why Russia is cozy with Syria (Oil and gas reserves, strategic control, weapons sales etc.) Why isn't the U.S. press talking about this?”
RayGunsMess on Sep 17, 2013 at 22:41:57
“They have to import oil to meet their needs in Syria...maybe Syria has fracking potential...”
“Yeah, well that did NOT happen...Sooooo...Obama gets the thumbs down from me...as I used to train military personnel in combat readiness (which included chemical attack scenarios)...using hypothetical Intel reports....the fictional stuff we used to write was better than what the President briefed the nation with tonight...so he gets a "F" from me on Syria. Putin gets the high grade for the peace initiative...(even if it is not deserved). The next "peace prize" goes to Putin.”

“Lab from the UN said its Sarin, and it was found on Syria's artillery and rockets that landed in the area...and guess who is going to get credit in the next elections for winning a military victory with out firing a shot...hint, it will not be the GOP...”

“Ohhh a grumpy goper...What kind of Bio suits did you use in your training?”
“You would be wrong... The people who need the most intervention live in Arkansas and Missouri (the crystal meth capital of the U.S.) who all vote Republican (the financiers of the drug war)....go figure!”
“RayGunsMess... I would love to discuss this further except....the U.S. has yet to disclose the details of the Syrian "Intell" with the American people....I am still waiting to see it....and I am certain you have not seen it either...”
RayGunsMess on Sep 10, 2013 at 00:15:56
“I would settle for lab analysis of the chemical used...That may be coming tomorrow with the big speech.”
“Under the heading of "full disclosure"...I am retired military. However....just because I spent my entire adult life in the military...does not mean I have biased opinion. War is something that should always be a "last resort". In the fog of war, the facts can become "foggy". Which is why I am a skeptic on the Syria issue. First and foremost...we need to get the Intelligence "right" and not like last time with Iraq. The world community will support intervention provided the Intell is accurate.”

“We did get the information right, the only reason we have an issue in Syria, is we did not get to Iraq fast enough.
Had we stopped those trucks, the gas would NOT be in Syria to use. Here we sit mad because Bush did NOT find the weapons that Obama found.”

“I believe the intel is accurate and Assad did gas his own people. But that is not how you drag a country into war...
Hermann Goering's Quote
On War And The People
"Naturally the common people don't want war: Neither in Russia, nor in England, nor for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But, after all, IT IS THE LEADERS of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is TELL THEM THEY ARE BEING ATTACKED, and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. IT WORKS THE SAME IN ANY COUNTRY."
--Goering at the Nuremberg Trials
With Obama using the truth to justify military action it is very unlikely he will get any majority support from Congress or the citizens, Maybe Kerry need to hire Cheney to talk up war, hes good at that...”
“The point I am making is that the Drug War and political ideology are very closely linked. Huff Post has censored my other posts...This is something I know about first hand....as I used to work for the leading backers of the Drug War.
My point is that the proponents of the Drug War believe that Cannabis will lead to pacifism and a weak military, homosexuality etc.(This is what they say behind closed doors to their friends and colleagues).”

“Straight out of the 1930s. Are they also proponents of social Darwinism?”

“Where is your cite? All the drug war did was waste money, corrupt public servants and harm people. Only 7% of Americans believe it's working. I guess you're one of them.”

“I'd rather be a weak pacifist than a trigger happy person who wants to go to war for the glory. Well, I'm already a pacifist to begin with, and I've been smoking pot for a long time now. Even though I'm a "stoner", I have priorities, a job, and I also go to school.”
Neal Feldman on Sep 4, 2013 at 00:30:59
“Cannabis causes homosexuality?
Congratulations... you have brought your credibility to absolute zero with that one.

“Sad evidence that from time to time the shadows can indeed diminish the light. I moved here twice in my life because of the kind of education available - once as a student, the other as a teacher. Now I am looking into moving away. Because the gerrymandering that put the thugs in control here lasts 10 years, it will probably outlast me - I am 73. I don't propose to live out the remainder of my life under vicious ignorant right wing fascists. The people of NC are pretty much the opposite of their government rulers, which shows us that politics can render democracy impotent and irrelevant at will, given enough $$. It is sadder yet that NC is one of about a dozen states that have fallen to literal fascism - where the private sector owns the government.”
“Jeff, My point is the actual "enforcement" side of things...regarding the "racial" side of things...nothing has changed since those days (see NYC stop and frisk etc...) Its an interestingly convenient way to reduce the number of eligible voters of a certain group of people, which also includes Federal Aid for education loans.”
“Too many here are confusing the facts vs. politics. The Drug War began with Richard M. Nixon looking for a way to crackdown on Vietnam War protestors and people like John Lennon (Beatles). The law against weed was not enforced prior to this time in U.S. History. Even certain Republicans silently support legalization (there is a lot of money to be made...big tobacco etc..) They have to get past the political hurdles for legalization to take effect. I predict this issue is going to go down the same path as prohibition...there are still counties in the U.S. which remain dry (no Alcohol sales).
Money will always override Morals in Washington D.C....this outcome is VERY predictable!”

“If you feel the fight against pot started with Nixon, you're about 40 years too late. Misinformation, (for the purpose of racial bias/oppression), began at the start of the 20th century in the U.S., and the 'war' started with the tax stamp laws for marijuana in the late 30's.”
“Scientific medical studies originating inside the U.S. are subject to the influence of Lobbyists and special interest groups who owe their livelihood (and funding) to the War on Drugs. If you want real facts, you need to go outside the U.S.
There is a real interesting BBC documentary on YouTube "The Truth About Smoking Cannabis" which conducted a study in Holland.
Our American media is under the influence of money and politics. The "Gateway Drug" to corruption and deception. (Hint: Money in politics has a DIRECT connection to the Drug War).
Join the Wolf-PAC founded by Chenk Uygur and The Young Turks to get money out of politics.”

“I am still waiting for someone to ask me how I know about this....(Money in politics has a DIRECT connection to the Drug War) ;)”
“I agree...certainly Putin has more diplomatic and political experience than Obama. Russia allowed the West to transition the former Soviet Union into what it is today...however they have a few regrets and are reversing the hospitality in a few areas...Putin is a product of his environment...a land ruled by gangsters and zealots who seek power. But it would not surprise me if Putin views us the same way.....its a very compelling argument.”
“Bergrayloff.....To me it comes down to one thing.....Obama did NOT show us the evidence last night (Intelligence on Syria). Now as anyone knows...if you actually had a solid case...you would present it right? Why did this NOT happen? There is only one answer....the Intel was not too solid and could not hold up in the courtroom of public opinion...in the U.S. or Internationally. Add to this that our Intelligence service is now fully integrated with Israel (JINSA), who has a high stake in the outcome of the Syrian crises (Gaza Oil fields etc.). The best thing Obama can do now is show us his "cards" and stop bluffing about who may be responsible for the Chemical attacks. Once we know who ACTUALLY did the attack, they will pay the price....once the the world is satisfied that due process has been exercised and we have thoroughly vetted the facts and accusations. If that bothers anyone...thank G.W. Bush and Cheney for forging WMD Intel in the lead-up to the Iraq war. This is now our legacy for years to come....
Putin will now be remembered as a hero, similar to Gorbachev (fall of the Berlin Wall).
Strange how our adversaries sometimes come to our rescue isn't it?”
bergrayloff on Sep 11, 2013 at 19:04:05
“I was slightly serious........ not totally.... but Putin shows more brilliance than our group of leaders.”
“I am really impressed that Huff Post did not censor your comments......after a thorough review...I figured out on my own what this whole "Syria thing" is about...(I used to create military exercise war scenarios....). Look up "Gaza Strip Oil" and you will get your answer....the chemical attack is a distraction to lure the U.S. into Dick Cheney's PNAC agenda together with Netanyahu's push for expanded real estate. This whole thing totally makes sense now....same Batsh*t channel....same....Batsh*t agenda. Now the question is who was ACTUALLY behind the chemical attack......”
“I am ashamed that the country I served for over 20 years has turned into a "Wag the Dog" daily docudrama. All the while, its what the press is NOT telling you that you need to focus your attention on. Look up "Golan Heights Oil" and you will learn the real reason behind this geopolitical circus act.”
“What started out as a political "force multiplier" during the Reagan years is now turning out to be a "force destroyer" for Semblers NeoCon RNC syndicate. No one feels your pain now Mel and Betty Sembler. Your operatatives are officially on the endangered species list (without Federal Protection). The Drug War will also take down your K-Street boyz in D.C...What a Sweet Bonus ;) This is your Real Legacy.....enjoy it...for you have earned it ;)”
“These days...when the government shuts things down...it includes money earmarked for government contractors...like the ones that are on Cantor's BFF list of War Inc. and of course his offshore friends like Netanyahu and the contractors that call Israel home. Cutting government spending INCLUDES cutting spending on Military Foreign Aid. Hey if your going to cut something, may as well spread the pain evenly!
That is life in a true Democracy !!! Reminds me of the story about King Solomon cutting the baby in half !!!”
